Ever hear the word projection?

That's the word that comes to mind when I hear some politicians speak. I'll spare you some names, but at least one of them will be out of office in less than 48 hours, so that's nice.

The world is full of great people. It also has no short supply of hypocrites, who twist and turn the narrative however it suits them. After Redditor spookyblookyyy asked the online community, "What/s the most hypocritical thing you've witnessed?" people told us about the people in their lives that make them shake their heads in disbelief.


"I was having a hard time..."

I was having a hard time getting a job after college.

My step-grandmother called me every single name in the book. Every variation of "deadbeat dependent loser" you can possibly think of. Almost every single time I saw her.

"No self-discipline, no drive, too dependent on others. I can't believe you can't get a job. I taught my daughters how to work. You're definitely your mother's child. I had expectations for my own kids. All I knew is I had to work."

This is the same person who never had a job in her life, wasn't able to collect her own social security since she never paid into it, and was 100 percent dependent on my grandpa.

Way to call the kettle black. It got so bad, I had to stop talking to her all together since each convo would just be putting me down.

"My ex-wife..."

My ex-wife, shortly after we separated, told me when/if I started seeing someone that she would want to meet them before our kids did. Which makes perfect sense. Two months later the guy she had an affair with moved from NC to FL and in with her and my two kids. I still haven't met him and it's been six months.

"A post..."

IG stories, lately.

A post saying stuff like "don't forget to wear a mask, we're all in this together, stay safe everyone!" followed by a series of videos taken inside of a crowded club, bumpin and grindin' up on each other, not a mask in sight.

"Infuriatingly entitled."

My friends who b!tch about people who break lockdown, then go on to break lockdown for "sleepovers" and "girly nights" the same day there were criticizing others. Infuriatingly entitled. "Others must follow the rules but they don't apply to me."

"I worked for a small company..."

I worked for a small company that hated, hated giving out raises.

The owners pulled a neat trick where they sold the company to itself. Then they became board members.

As soon as they weren't responsible for the revenue (after all they got the money for the sale) we were getting berated for everyone having a low salary.

It was like - you set our prices and the salaries as of last month. We don't HAVE any funds because you sold the business to itself and we need to pay that note.

He was RIGHT and we worked on fixing it. But suddenly being blindsided due to being in the position he created drove me nuts.

"People who abuse children..."

I work in a courthouse. People who abuse children for years and years and when they get on the stand they breakdown crying and plea for mercy.

"Bashing other people..."

Bashing other people for racism and being racist towards a different minority.

"Astounding."

In Alberta, Canada our government (rightfully) put in place very strict social distancing rules over the Christmas holidays. Everyone had to stay home. You couldn't see anyone outside your household. Our hospitals/ICUs were full. Tons of businesses were closed.

Many government officials traveled outside of the country to places like Mexico, Hawaii, and Europe. Some of them to meet extended family members for a "holiday.". One of them tried to defend their actions by saying "but it's a 17-year tradition for us to go to Hawaii for Christmas."

Astounding.

"Sometimes they'll come on TV..."

Televangelists preaching how we should live modestly while they own several private jets to fly around the country spreading the word of The Lord.

Sometimes they'll come on TV saying God came to them in a dream saying they needed more.

Jesus would fly coach if he flew at all.

I believe Jesus also preached about taking in the displaced, etc.?

If I remember correctly in 2017 Joel Osteen was not allowing hurricane evacuees into his megachurch.

"I know someone..."

I know someone who won't take any vaccines because she doesn't want "the mercury and who knows whatever else is in there" in her body, yet eats fish and has unprotected sex with strangers from the internet..

Let's be honest, most of us don't read the Terms and Conditions before we click that little "I Agree" button. Most of you probably aren't even going to read this intro.

A huge chunk of you are going to open this article and immediately scroll to "the meat" because we're all about getting to the good stuff. But that rush can sometimes mean missing out on some seriously important tidbits of info.

Death is scary. It brings the unknown of the great beyond, whether that's heaven, some other afterlife, or total nothingness, depending on what you believe.

But there is one perk that comes with death: total control of your funeral.

After we've watched a movie, it can be difficult to imagine the film as a project that took months or years to finally culminate into the product we see at the theater or on our television.

But it was built and hacked together, piece by piece.
